    If selling on this site. Ensure the buyer has plenty of positive feedback, and expect them to ask you to post it first before payment. Or, they may be okay with a face to face meeting if they're in you're area.

    If in doubt about price auction the item/s, it'll tell you market value, use lots of bubble wrap/cardboard when posting - assume someone will kick it like a football.

    Set your terms -end time, minimum/reserve, postage price or if it can be F2F, if any antisniping rules apply (extension of auction if bid within 5mins of close or similar). Check out some recent auctions to see how they went.
    You won't get eBay prices because you don't pay eBay fees.

    If unsure how to set up auction terms, view older sales threads to get an idea.

    Hi John, welcome to SS hope you enjoy your stay. If you need an escrow in Perth pm me I don't charge anything and I have many people on this site that can vouch for my integrity if you are unsure of any high ticket item's that are heading this way. Good luck with your sales.
